Re: Community Disappointment

In the beginning we needed to act as a cohesive element to stop the ban on kiting. I'm ashamed to say the reason more were vocal back then is likely that riders were threatened across all locations from a universal ban as we were watched more closely (I'm talking world-wide not just here). The threa...
